The 3 Special fasts of every month (The White Days)

 

 

Ay’yaam e Baydh, The 3 Special fasts of every month (The Days of Whiteness, i.e. Radiance)
Every month there are 3 special fasts, known as Ay’yaam e Baydh.
These are on the 13th, 14th, 15th of the Islamic Calendar (i.e. the lunar
month).

Hadith: Bukhari, Muslim and Nasa’i report from Abu
Hurairah and Muslim reports from Abu Dardah hat Rasoolullah
صلى الله عليه وسلم advised me with regards to three things. Of them, one
is that I should keep three fasts every month.

Hadith: It is in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim from Abdullah
ibn Amr ibn A’as  that Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘There are three
fasts in every month which are like fasting always.’
A similar narration is from Qur’rah bin Ay’yas

Hadith: Imam Ahmed, Ibn Hib’ban, Ibn Abbas and Bazaar
report from Maula Ali that Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘The fasts of
Ramadaan and the three fasts every month remove the weaknesses of
the chest.’

Hadith: Tabrani reports from Maymuna bin Sa’ad  that
Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘Whosoever is able to, should keep three fasts
every month, for every fast, wipes out ten sins and cleanses one from
sins, just as water cleans clothing.’

Hadith 30: Imam Ahmed, Tirmizi, Nasa’i, and Ibn Majah report from
Abu Zarr that Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, ‘If you intend to keep three fasts
in a month, then keep it on the 13th, 14th, and 15th (of the month).’
